BARRIERS AGAINST DEMOCRACY IN BRITAIN'S ELECTORAL SYSTEM Plural Voting and University .Representation Were Devised by the Great Houses for Their Political Advantage with Hie franchise bill before the BrlliBli House of Commons, a mono- graph. ;by Edward Porritt, the known Journalist and economist, 01 "Barriers Against Democracy In the B-itish Electoral has excep- tional Inierest. Jlr. Porritt's article appeared before the introduction of the new franchise bill, in the Political Science Quarterly, N'ew York. It has very fittingly been reprinted. The two reforms of the franchise, abolition of plural voting and aboli- tion of university representation. which comprise Mr. Porritt's article, are both provided for In the bill now before the British House of Commons. Previous attempts to have these elec- toral anomalies removed and the man- ner in which plural voting and univer- sity representation came into exist- ence are outlined by Jlr. Porritt in an able historical review of the subject. Planned to Aid Landed Aristocracy Each iad its origin, he tells us, in the eager desire, of either the crown or the landed aristocracy to control elections to the House of Commons. It was in the English counties, as op- posed to the borough, tkat the non- resident voter, as long ago as the six- teenth century, first established him- self, and then with the Stuarts came the practice of creating votes, "fassot as they were .called, on the basis of nonTcsWence. The great Re- form Act of 1S32 put an end. It is true, to voting by non-occupying freehold- ers, ;as tuch in'towns and cities, but, on the other hand, It provided that those non-occupying free-holders were to vote in the counties, or country constituencies. Formerly Handicapped Conservatives This provision, says Mr. Porritt, was cannily made-by'the Whigs to prevent any jeopardizing of their strength !n the towns and cKies. Thus from 1S32 to 1S67 it was the Conser- vatives who complained of the influ- ence of town, freeholders In determin- ing country elections. It was tile Con- servatives who, through this period, suffered most from the of whom Liberals and the Labor party have complained so foitterly since 1SSB. As late as Gladstone's franchise reform bill of 1S84 the ad- vantage to the Liberals, from, outside voters was so great that Mr. Glad- stone retained in that bill, in the face of Conservative protests, the right of the town freeholder to vote in the country constituencies. It is interest- ing to note that several Liberals, In- cluding the late Henry Labouchre, op- posed Mr. Gladstone, and as early as 1884 tried to put the franchise on a one-man-one-vote basil. Tjre Tablet Turned The next attack, on the plural voter came in 1882 in a bill introduced by Mr. Shaw-Lefevre and supported, amongst others, by Sir William Bar- court, itie late Henry Broadhurst and Mr. Asqulth. The Liberals at that time were in opposition and tlie bill was from the first a forlorn. 3iope. Nothing was done to abolish plural voting during the Liberal. parliament of 1832-1S95, but almost the first bill carried through the Houie Com- mon! when the present Lifoeral gov- ernment was returned to power in 1906 was one abolishing all plural vot- ing. The Conservatives, who, since 1885, had no longer any grievance igainst the to'wrr freeholder voting in country elections, naturally opposed :he bill at every stage. It passed how- by 333 Totes to 104, only to be thrown out by the House of Lords Iis> "It is with plcimre I write inform yoo thit your Ni-Dru-Co Dyspepsia Tiblett iMvt proVed of great value to me, I tried, remedy remedy but without good..

NAVAL POLICY FOR CANADA WALTER LONG, UNIONIST MEM- BER FAVORS A STRAIGHT MONEY CONTRIBUTION Toronto, Aug. think tho form of Canada's contribution to the Im- perial -Navy is a matter for Canada en- said the Right Hon. Walter II. Long, M.P., today. "But I cannot help thinking that the best, form would be a contribution of ships or of money to tho Imperial Parliament.

"Nothing will make so much for the peace of the, Mr. Long proceeded, "as a clear intimation that our great Overseas' Dominions, head- ed and led by Canada, are going to stand by the Mother Country, and torm a real, Imperial d-efence force.1' "IB tbo Gefman.menace real, or only asked the reporter.

"Tariff reform is now part of the. Unionist general poli- cy, and my belief is that this govern- ment is going as fast as it can to its doom. It is going to its grave. They cannot possibly hope to carry Home Hulc, or any other great measure." Mr. Long is accompanied on his trip to the West by Lady. Doreen, Major. Morrison Bell. M.

P. for ilerthiyiyTycivil, has arrived in Mon- treal aboard the Hesperian from Glas- gow. The Three Guardsmen The Gurney-Oxforld Range if fitted with which constantly and uncompromisingly stand on guard to see that the fire U always under .perfect the coal bills are sheared down to the lowest the oven is always evenly and properly no obstruct tlie free burning and proper ventilation of the fire, The Gurney-Econoniizer, fitted on the smoke pipe, is the only draft you have to attend to; a small lever put up or down entirely regulates the fire. It saves one ton of coal in six. It carries little heat up the the smoke. It feeds the gases which burn to fire-box, and it cannot be had on any other range than the Gurney-Oxford. The Guniey-Oxford oven is surrounded by flues that carry an equal amount of heat to all sides. This almost guarantees results in cooking by providing an oven evenly heated, without cold corners or variation. The Giirney-Oxford Grate is the result o'f ex- haustive tests to find the proper carrying surface, for the fire. The fire has abundant air to breathe, and the less amount of coal burned is all consumed. So then, the housewife who has the Three Guardsmen watching over her range, will experience security and satisfaction in cooking that is net provided by any "other range. C. W.
